Robert Clay

Event: Wedding
Location: Nottinghamshire
5/5

Mat and the band were excellent from start to finish and handled our requests perfectly whilst also making suggestions for how schedule their performance at our wedding based on their experience (which was very much appreciated!). We asked for two sets, one which was more jazz standards based for a chill start and another being jazzy renditions of more modern songs later on for dancing. Both were absolutely amazingly performed and had folks up and dancing throughout. We can't thank the band enough for making our day feel that much more special and would wholeheartedly recommend them!
